Oh bless, I came back to this tea today after scaring myself right off it when I first got it by trying it FAR too strong. It is a very strong brew (something I like about the plain Ajiri tea, TBH) but with the ginger it can get overwhelming. Today I tried just one scoop for my 500ml mug, with a tsp of sugar and some milk. It was a cockle-warming sort of thing for a rainy day and it worked beautifully.

I don’t have this in my cupboard at home but we’ve just got it in at the hotel for the season! My boss hasn’t moved into “weird tea” land before so I’m very excited and doing my best to promote it because it’s delicious. The other reviewer is right, a bit of milk and sugar and it’s a delicious dessert tea.

When you have a cold virus and it’s shark week sometimes you just have to self medicate with an entire pot of your favourite tea.

I’m getting low in supply! Better switch my DT canister to Love Tea #7 for a while.

I used the last little bit of my milk with this blend tonight and certainly didn’t need added sugar. I think a drop of milk is the way to go! Zzz.

Goodbye, you beautiful bastard. It’s fair that you almost destroyed my cooktop on our final rendezvous. Ok fine so technically I was the one to almost destroy the cooktop because I forgot how quickly milk can bubble up but whatEVER.

You were delicious and I’ll miss you. Thanks to Hobart’s weirdo weather for being freezing today on my lazy day off and thanks to me for actually having milk in the fridge for once.

drank Good Morning by T2
918 tasting notes

Last week I celebrated my third anniversary of moving to Tasmania. I celebrated by going to a whisky and sherry tasting event and getting heinously drunk. Oops.

The next morning my friends dragged me out to brunch despite my desperately hungover state, and for the first time ever when hungover, I craved sugary, milky black tea. I’ve never wanted tea when hungover before but that morning it was all I wanted (… and lots of bacon). I got it and it did not disappoint. It was so delicious and just what I wanted and needed.

Since then I’ve been on a bit of a sugary, milky black tea bender (not as badly as the night that caused the following day’s craving, a little more drawn out) and this is the beast that’s been in my cupboard and seeing me through this phase. Good job. Hits the spot. What a treat.

85 — very good! you should try this tea!
80-70 — I enjoyed this and will happily drink it again.
65-50 — Fine. Unremarkable.
45-35 — this wasn’t the worst drink ever but I was disappointed; it didn’t live up to my expectations at all.
30-0 — I didn’t enjoy this tea and that makes me sad.

MY TEASTORY:

Grandad got me started young, white (a LOT of white) Irish breakfast with two.

I never strayed far from that until the world of T2 Tea came to Brisbane some years ago, and now I don’t know what I’d do without a pantry full of tea options.

These days I prefer to drink my teas straight without sweetener (though I appreciate some black variations shine better with milk and/or a dash of honey/sugar). I also love a speedy iced tea (hot brewed then poured over ice), and my latest obsession is cold brewing (which doesn’t make a lot of sense, as Australia is headed into winter and I live in the coldest corner of the country, but oh well).

I’d love to make a bunch of tea friends on here, especially those who can talk Aussie teas with me. I’ve recently come back from a jaunt to North America and it was a real hoot to hit up DAVIDsTEA after reading so many reviews! I wish I’d had the chance to get to more stores… but I’m happy with what I got back past customs. See those teas and my local jams in my reviews.

I LOVE:
+ black teas
+ white teas
+ oolongs
+ flavoured versions of all three of the above
+ herbal infusions and fruit tisanes

NOT A FAN:
+ most green teas
+ LICORICE ROOT (my sworn enemy) and aniseed flavours
